Hi all,

Could someone tell if it is possible to have all 80 characters of a line in a panel as input filed...im asking this because the first byte gets allocated to the attribute byte.....is there some method to override it...ive heard of shadow bytes...but nothin more..

Who says panel width is 80 character? Try to use a 130-characters library and see....

The fina manual says that panel width can be 80-160 wide.

Anyway, your problem looks like the panel library wasn't allocated to ISPPLIB.

nope ive properly allocated the panel library to ISPPLIB,and iive read the fine manual,but im repeatedly getting the same error....but if i move the same panel code to a pds with rec length 80 and allocate it to ISPPLIB it works fine..of course with the first byte used up for the attribute byte...how do i overcome this..
basically my requirement is this....Im trying to display a panel (24x80) with all the lines as input fields..like a free text editor...infact i wasnt able to expand the window to 24x80 since i was gettin error msgs regarding width exceeding screen width etc...but ive overcome this with the RESIZE command but nw im stuck with this prob..pls help me out..
